If you are feeling a little deja vu right now, it isn’t you… I used this same frame for my crochet Christmas stars last week. I am repainting my living room furniture, and since I always put the tree in our living room, I’m treeless until I get the furniture finished. But I just couldn’t wait to share these Christmas ornaments with you, so I hope you’ll forgive me! 🙂 I did snap a few pictures of them outside hanging on my redwood tree to give you an idea of what they look like on a tree. 🙂
These are really easy to put together, and all you need are some vintage hinges, some vintage costume jewelry, and a pair of small pliers. It’s great way to repurpose vintage costume jewelry!
There are several necklaces in the picture above, but I decided to just use the necklace on the left for this tutorial.
There were a lot of different components on this necklace, which was nice because it gave me a variety of stuff to work with. I started breaking it down as shown above while I got an idea about what I wanted to do.
I started by wrapping around a linked chain around this drawer pull backing (okay, there not all hinges).
I used a little hot glue (okay, a lot of hot glue; I probably didn’t need to use that much) to secure the chain on the back, then I hung some of the linked beads off of each end of the linked chain
I used one of the linked beads andattached the chain and hook from the necklace to the hole on top of the drawer backing.
This is also how I attached the necklace components onto the hinges.
I cut apart the rest of the linked chain and attached them to the tops of the hinges as hanging loops.
That’s pretty much it! These were a lot easier to put together than I’d thought they’d be!
Though I really wanted to hang these on my tree, they do look nice on my wired frame for the time being. 🙂
